+1 reason why you must stop using Chrome and, if possible, Chromium browsers

(Upd: link to a post in Fediverse with tech details https://fedi.simonwillison.net/@simon/112757810519145581)

(Upd 2: MS Edge seems to have this issue; #Vivaldi also has it but it can be disabled; Ungoogled Chromium doesn't have it at all)

It turns out Google Chrome ships a default, hidden extension that allows code on `*.google.com` access to private APIs, including your current CPU usage

You can test it out by pasting the following into your Chrome DevTools console on any Google page:

chrome.runtime.sendMessage(
"nkeimhogjdpnpccoofpliimaahmaaome",
{ method: "cpu.getInfo" },
(response) => {
console.log(JSON.stringify(response, null, 2));
},
);

The worst kind of tech hype is when something is portrayed as inevitable and unstoppable, with criticism or doubt blithely dismissed as "they don't get it".

Just because a giant tech company pours vast amounts of money down a toilet, that doesn't mean the toilet is going to start spewing gold coins into the air.

African AI workers, mostly from Kenya, released an open letter to Joe Biden this week asking him stop US tech companies from “systemically abusing and exploiting African workers” and to end the “modern day slavery” they’re subjected to.

Apple's new iPad ad hasn't gone down well with creatives, according to @AxiosNews. The commercial showed a massive hydraulic press crushing musical instruments, arcade games, cameras and paint cans, and reopening to reveal just an iPad. "I'm definitely the target audience for the new iPad Pro but this ad is tone-deaf and insulting to artists of every kind," wrote cartoonist James Kochalka on X. "We think of our tools with reverence and respect, and enjoy a healthy dialogue with them. Our tools are like trusted companions on the journey of art." Here's more.

I’ll be speaking at #AMRO24 in Linz, Austria on May 8! Come along to hear me talk about how the tech industry is much more overtly embracing government and military to protect itself.

hi I’m Ginny! #introduction

I spent my first decades as a generic white boy in tech, then a year ago I signed up for my first mastodon account and discovered I am a girl!

I post about tech, trans life, post selfies, and openly talk about mental illness and pain (cw'ed)

I’m a single parent w/ a 9 yo daughter, working as a software engineer in Seattle. I also write fiction (ya and speculative) and am generally very dorky.

btw you can be a girl if you want to be, inquire within!

NEW: WhatsApp will soon make it possible to chat with people who use other messaging apps. It's revealed some more details on how that will work.

— Apps will need to sign an agreement with Meta, then connect to its servers.
— Meta wants people to use the Signal Protocol, but also says other encryption protocols can be used if they can meet WhatsApp's standards
— WhatsApp has been testing with Matrix in recent months, although nothing is agreed yet. Swiss app Threema says it won't become interoperable

There's something about Bethesda's (nowadays flawed) approach to an RPG that keeps pulling me back to #Starfield time and again. Especially on the OLED Deck :steamdeck:, even though I spend most of my time playing through GeForce Now. 👀

"In a completely unrelated note, Spotify is shutting down in Uruguay after the country passed a bill that requires fair pay to artists, as reported by MixMag. The company made threats to shut down when the bill was first suggested back in July and now it has followed through. A spokesperson for Spotify actually wrote Uruguay's Minister of Education, Pablo Da Silveira, to say that the country’s bill would force it to “pay twice” the amount of royalties to artists." "

I'm genuinely surprised at how XeSS appears to be shaping up to become the better upscaling choice in more and more games at lower resolutions, such as the :steamdeck: Steam Deck's 800p.

OFC, one does always buy into an #Ecosystem...

I think #Canonical should not #hamfist #Snap too hard and instead work towards a safe alliance to enshure portability of #Linux applications across Distros to replace the #RedHat dominance and avoid a #Duopoly if not #Tripoly for their own sake.

Which reminds me that @EU_Commission not calling out #RHEL and #Autodesk as #Market #Gatekeepers shows that those decisionmakers know shit about #tech.
